The goal of Plum is to help you save more money.
We won’t reach out with any recommendations unless we believe that it will be a good idea for you. To do this Plum scans your account for bills and compares them to what you would be paying with a cheaper provider. If we can save you a decent amount we will reach out to you to check a few details and confirm it is worth switching for you.
To do that, Plum looks at your monthly bill, your energy provider and uses the public standard tariff of your provider to calculate your expected usage in Gas and Electricity. It uses this to determine what your savings would be if you switched to Octopus.
